Party in a Bag by Tessa

Tessa Buys, one of our brilliant 2011 SRM Stickers Design Team members is treating us today to her version of our new product, Party in a Bag! Enjoy!

Tessa says, "I fussy-cut flowers from patterned paper to make the invitations. On the inside, I added banner-cut strips and a border sticker. For the envelopes, I cut apart a border sticker and layered it with fabric tape in the corner. I added sentiment stickers directly onto the fabric tape."

Tessa used the round baby images in a banner. She simply added them to cardstock and punched them out with a starburst punch. She punched starbursts out of patterned paper and sewed the circles together.

Tessa cut apart one of the border stickers to create cupcake flags and cut apart more border stickers, combined them with fabric tape to close a party favor bag filled with flower seeds.

Tessa also created flowers to top tubes and added a sentiment to the center of each one.

Here's what Tessa had to say about her time on the 2011 SRM Stickers Design Team; "I count being a part of the SRM team in 2011 as one of my greatest blessings of the year. It has been an amazing experience. Susan has been an absolute dream to work for. She is caring, encouraging, and oh-so-thoughtful. Jenyfur has been a magnificent team coordinator and cheerleader. Every member of the design team was kind, supportive and inspiring. Just to be associated with these gals has been a huge boost to my crafty morale and creativity. I am most grateful for the friendships that have grown here. I am also grateful for the amazing product that I was able to work with. SRM cannot be beat in quality or versatility, which makes SRM Stickers my go-to product for just about any crafty endeavor I take on. SRM will forever have a place in my crafty heart :)."

We adore you and your work, Tessa, thank you so much!
